Become a TeachSurfer and join us in an effort to make a difference.
TeachSurfing.org : TeachSurfing enables newcomers, locals, and travelers to exchange their knowledge and culture worldwide.
In Germany we connect refugees and locals by enabling them to exchange their knowledge over workshops and talks. So far we supported over 30 newcomers to offer Arabic and Farsi language workshops and cultural talks to Berliners. On the other hand Berliners offered photography, painting, web development, and German culture talks for refugees. We plan to gradually increase the amount of workshops to further facilitate interaction between refugees and locals.

Afrika-in-Berlin is a group of friends, mainly from West-Africa, that got together over a year ago. Starting from weekly improvisation trainings with the former Oranienplatz activists in Gitschiner15, a core group united and formed Afrika in Berlin.
Combining dance, music, physical theatre and text, Afrika in Berlin gives its audience an idea about what it is like to be African in Berlin. From the journey to get here in the first place to daily life encounters in the U-Bahn, and from small and moving love stories to the saddening experiences of racism in the city, the actors offer a small glimpse into all the different elements of their lives.
